Transcript of Writing Process 2012-2013

Writers go back and forth between stages of the writing process as they write pieces. When we talk about these six phases or stages, you should bear in mind that writing is a recursive process. Writers do not move neatly through each step of the process in sequence. They go back and forth as needed.

For example, the writer who is revising and recognizes that she needs more information may go back to her prewriting and planning as well as drafting to add more information or develop her ideas better.

Another writer may publish his text by posting it on the internet while he is still drafting; he pre-writes, plans, drafts, publishes, revises the published version, possibly drafting more, back and forth, until he finishes. The Writing Process Is Recursive Prewriting: Engaging in activities that generate ideas, including quicklists, brainstorming, free-writing, clustering, creating tree diagrams or webs, or even drawing or spending quiet time thinking.
Planning: Designing structure and content of the text.
Drafting: Composing text into first draft, second draft, or final draft.
Revising: Re-seeing or re-envisioning the entire text by adding or deleting content, changing the order of presentation, making major organizational or stylistic changes, even perhaps changing point of view or persona.
Editing and Proofreading: Making changes at sentence level, including changing word choice and sentence structure as well as correcting simple spelling, capitalization, punctuation, or sentence-combining errors.
Publishing: Formatting, producing, and distributing the polished text, including presenting an individual portfolio, publishing a class book, creating a webpage, sending a letter, as well as simply turning a finished text in to a teacher.
